the palestinian negotiation wanted to meet with them privately, and i quote from the palestine documents leak by the palestinian delegation saying, i want to meet with you privately, quote, so i can tell you what i think of your positions without hurting my role as the honest broker. the letter of assurances sent by secretary baker to the palestinians in 1991, and secretary rice's comments in 2008 reiterate a central myth about the palestinian-israeli conflict. this is that the united states serves as animal honest broker between the two sies. in this book, brokers of deceit, i argue that over many decades, the united states is, in fact, acted in a thoroughly one-sided fashion regarding the palestinian solution. in sons convince, csh -- consequence, it's not just resided over a process, but exacerbated and prolonged a conflict which according to another many myth is one between near equals. you have the palestinians and israelis that have to be brought to the table, and, yet, according to another myth, if one party in the conflict is a victim, it's the israelis who suffer the most. you can se

would look with favor upon the establishment of the homeland for the jewish people in palestine. and so he said i think we can probably do that. so there were discussions through the summer and then on the 17th of november i think it was 1917 the letter was formally written and was delivered to the president of the world zionist congress with a copy to the professor of biology at the university of manchester that said precisely that, the magistrate government would look with favor on the establishment for the jewish people in palestine. and that of course was the declaration, which led in 1948 to the creation of the state of israel, which was created from chemistry a level known aspect of chemistry, but from my point of view crucial in the middle of the atlantic ocean. so that is the more important story. and then the third one if i have time to tell the story and then there will be time for the book there is an island in the south atlantic which is a british possession and an extremely miserable place, the most isolated in habited in the world. it's about 1800 miles west of cape town,
there anyway? >> it's a good theory but in israel and palestine there are no easy issues, they're all hard. it's hard, harder, and hardest. the principle is a sound one. you start with what you think you can resolve. our position was-- and i believe the american position remains-- let's start with borders and security. palestinians a eply concerned abouthe borders. the president set out the american position in a speech a couple of years ago. the israelis are deeply concerned -- >> rose: a return to the '67 borders with some changes. >> that's right, mutually agreed changes. and the israelis are understandably deeply concerned about security. they have a state but they still live in fear and anxiety because of the circumstances in which they live. and we thought that's the best way to begin and incidentally that's the way you get to resolve settlements. if you finally have a line: here's israel, here's palestine, you nuild what you want on your side of the line, you can build what you want on your side of the line. the way to do it is to get into negotiations and to stay there until you resolv
and a possible trip to palestine. however american intelligence officials were only told about this after the boston bombing. despite this, tamerlan and his mother were added to the u.s. terror database in 2011. lawmakers are questioning whether the intelligence community should have been better prepared for a possible attack. >> to me, there was enough smoke there that you know whether or not there was fire, there was enough smoke that that investigation should have been kept more active. >> it's a failure to share information and missing obvious warning signs, we're going back to the pre-9/11 stovepiping. how could you miss the fact that the guy you were informed by a foreign intelligence service, you got a radical in your midst. >> before announcing system failure, it's worth looking closely at the system itself. in 2011, america's terror database had 500,000 names. it currently has 700,000. one of the major hurdles for the intelligence community is the problem of centralization. a two-year "washington post" investigation into the u.s. intelligence community published in 2010 found mor

that your son is being taught that palestine is a state and, therefore, it would fall under some sort of tenet of agreeable warfare is factually wrong. >> right. beyond that, clayton, my son's curriculum teaches that the koran is the word of god as revealed to the prophet muhammad through the angel gabriel. as he began to preach the truth that god revealed to him, he endured persecution. i don't expect the government to teach anyone my faith, because they do a bad job at it. at the same time it's not reasonable to expect parents to tolerate our children being taught inaccuracies about our own faith while another is consistently presented with statements of facts. >>clayton: you had a number of meetings with the school districts and principals over the past years. where did that get you? what came up in those meetings? >> they basically said here's some paper work you can fill out, but i can tell you it won't do any good because we have determined that it's not going anywhere. and in those meetings the curriculum directors went on to tell us that the 9/11 terrorists were no worse than
broker the '95 west barveg gaza strip between israel and palestine. in your estimation, what kind of impetus can kerry bring to the restart that former secretary of states have not been able to convey? >> well, i think we are clearly in a difficult time because there's such a high level of disbelief and even cynicism about the process. so i think merely trying to resume talks while it's an important objective, it may be even a more important objective to see if you can create a set of ground rules for those talks. which you don't want to do is resume the talks and then have them crash again. what you do want to do is try to ensure that you've created enough common ground so if you begin the talks, you have a reason, a, to sustain them. b, you can demonstrate something has changed because of that. we're in the 27th year since it began, the moment at the white house with yasser arafat. that's one of the reasons that talks talks by themselves, as important as they are, they are not the key thing. what can secretary kerry do to prepare the former basis on which to proceed. what can he
the palestinian conflict. 75% of palestine is jordan. 25% is israel. do you ever see jordan accepting responsibility of doing anything as far as getting land to any of the palestinians? >> yes. i suggest it at the very end of the book. if you had a palestinian state it would be a small, tiny, not very prosperous states. it would naturally have a relationship to the kingdom of jordan. you would travel through the airport, your trade would be with jordan. the economic link of the trade agreement and union, common currency would be natural. wouldn't political links developed as well particularly when they need security and law-and-order, the jordanian army is a good army? i will quote a palestinian friend of mine who said remembers this, there must be an independent palestinian state at least for 15 minutes. what he meant was there is a principal for them, to independence. exercising that right successfully is quite a different story. >> i am a professor -- i have a question. dimension someone is in your dock fifth, many israelis like myself believe the doctrine of islam, there can be no
. they begin to see the issue not just in terms of some local dispute, whether it's palestine, kashmir, chechnya or mali. and begin to see the dispute through the narrative of al qaeda. that it's a global war against islam. now, in this case, there's a very good chance that he never got in touch with a single person from al qaeda. they never had interaction with anybody from al qaeda. but they may have had interaction via the web and the internet with al qaeda's ideology, with al qaeda websites. which in the process of radicalization, gave them targets that they would not have thought of before. and that that target became america and everything about the united states of america. >> and from your knowledge, there was a conversation between vladimir putin and president obama on friday night, a pledge of more cooperation. but the fact is, that over the past few years, there has not been a whole lot of cooperation between the russian security services and our intelligence services. >> no. and let's be honest about what's going on in chechnya. under mr. putin, there have been horrendous h
in how to make bombs and set up al qaeda cells in palestine because of course they are very weak in that region of the world. and what i learned from this man in my discussions with him is the similar pattern, the same pattern we see with tamerlan tsarnaev and that is that somebody adopted a globalist outlook, somebody who fundamentally went through a shift in identity, who though he was initially motivated by a local cause, no longer cared for the grievance that belonged in chechnya against the russians, and so we've got to recognize that though we are able to and i believe that president obama's policy of increased drone strikes at a frequency far higher than president bush ever attempted, i believe it's misplaced because though we're able to take up leadership of these groups, unless we recognize that the real target should be this ideology that convinces young people to upend themselves and travel across the world and attack people that have got nothing to do with them on behalf of people that have got nothing to do with them, the younger brother let's remember said in his in
is a serious one. and it's covering the israel palestine conflict and how important it is to bring out the voices across the political spectrum. i fear that the media -- in essence it is changing. i am reporting often and we see that with israel as well. we very much bring out different perspectives. and we interview [inaudible name] who is the former israeli foreign minister. he said it was the most excited content extensive discussion we have had. and we don't just do soundbite television and radio. we give the whole meal. we will have extended debates and discussions about these critical issues. you know, we interview palestinian journalists, academics, people on the ground, and we interview the israelis as well. i think one area that is overlooked in the united states is the israeli peace movement. but i think public opinion is shifting dramatically. students on college campuses, jewish and non-jewish, they have a different perspective. whether it comes to the number of palestinians that they are holding, palestinian prisoners who died in custody, protests, giving voice to those pr
that is very serious with the israel / palestine conflict how important it is to bring out the voices across the political spectrum. i fear the media in the united states is changing, but as you report on powerhouse with the united states we see that with israel presenting the israeli government's side and we very much bring out different perspectives. we interviewed the former israeli foreign minister. he said it was the most extensive discussion he had had in the united states about is real. we don't just do sound by television in radio and we give the whole meal with extended debates and discussions about these issues. we interview palestinian journalists, academics, peop le on the ground and cause the, the occupied territories and the area that is overlooked in the united states is the israeli peace movement but public opinion is shifting to radically. students on college campuses , jewish and non-jewish have a different perspective on what israel is doing in the occupied territories it comes to palestinian prisoners a day are dying in custody, of the protests both with the west bank and
the associations of care, isna, nait and the hoeland -- holy land foundation, the islamic association for palestine and with hamas. while the court recognizes that the evidence provided -- produced by the government largely predates the holy land foundation designation date, the evidence is nonetheless sufficient to show the association of these entities with the hoeland land foundation -- holy land foundation, the islamic foundation for palestine and hamas. there was plenty of evidence to support that. according to the judge. that was affirmed by the fifth circuit. it's important to note that out of concern for the f.b.i.'s outreach program and the state department and the white house, for reaching out, bringing in people who courts have said supported terrorism, and these people are being brought in in the military, we say brought inside the wire this in case brought inside the state department, brought inside the white house on a regular basis, brought inside the justice department, my friend frank wolf had this language added to the continuing resolution that was passed that president obama sig
